This new collection of poems by Sharena is a brave, direct and personal exploration of the dark and often unspoken experiences of a woman’s life. Each poem draws you in to a world at once familiar and sometimes shocking but telling a very real story to the point and with emotion.
‘Sharena’s poetry is a live demonstration of how poetry enables survival and healing. Her voice is honest, candid and vulnerable and this collection is a generous offer to the world!’
‘I cried whilst reading some of the poems as Sharena has the ability to fully submerge you in the life and experiences of the women depicted so intimately.’
~Dionne V Hood
